Moving and sorting of objects

Drag & drop is a method for moving graphic elements in a (web) application using a mouse. An item can be dragged and then released over a possible destination.

Drag & drop is one of the most important control elements of the editor and is used for the following two different purposes:

  • Organisation of structure: Changing the order and the nesting of objects in the object tree.
  • Linking: Simple placing of links within the rich text editor or for reference fields.

The system gives immediate acknowledgment of a drag & drop operation in all significant places:

  • Highlighting of the object
  • Visualisation of dragging
  • Displaying where the object can be dropped
  • Acknowledgment when dropping
